Teacher’s Road Rage Incident Shakes Community as Gun is Drawn on Teenager

A Florida teacher was arrested after a road rage incident where he brandished a weapon at a teenager. On August 2nd, 36-year-old Brandon Greggory Crumbley engaged in a road rage situation, brake-checking a car driven by a 16-year-old.

Shortly after, while parking at his apartment complex, Crumbley and the victim exchanged words as the teenager drove by with his window down.

The driver reported that Crumbley showed a firearm by lifting his shirt. The teenager didn’t stop and continued past Crumbley. During the investigation, Crumbley initially denied removing the weapon from its holster or using it threateningly.

However, after reviewing surveillance footage, it was clear that Crumbley not only lied but also seemed to taunt the victim with the weapon.

In the video, as the vehicle left the area, Crumbley was seen holding the gun over his head, pointing it at the victim’s car, and then raising it toward the sky, as if signaling the teenager to return.

A warrant was issued for Crumbley’s arrest, and he was apprehended on Thursday, August 31st by the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force at his home on Hammock Trail East in Freeport. He now faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, improper display of a firearm, and obstruction, and a $10,000 bond was set.

Authorities disclosed that Crumbley works as a teacher at Okaloosa Academy in Okaloosa County.
